Cannabis chocolates are not only one of the most delicious edibles, but they are also well-known to offer a deeper, more resonating body high when consumed. What’s more is that cocoa – the main ingredient in chocolate is also a natural source of cannabinoids. So, no matter which type of dominant strain you choose (sativa or indica) you can enjoy a cannabis chocolate edible with your lover, or just with yourself this Valentine’s Day.
The flavor profiles of chocolate and cannabis blend so well together as a pairing – you don’t want to miss it! Here are the top 5 cannabis chocolates to try this Valentine’s Day:
1. KIVA Confections.

2. Défoncé. When you want to feel sexy, start speaking French! And the first word you can learn is: Défoncé.

Is Cannabis Chocolate the Ultimate Edible?
Chocolate is well-known to be one of the best Valentine’s Day gifts to offer someone. Not only is it absolutely decadent but it also offers “feel-good” brain chemicals including tryptophan (happiness), phenylethylalanine (attraction), theobromine (stimulant) and of course cannabinoids including that of THC and CBD, plus any others.
There is no better way to show someone you love them than breaking off a square of dark chocolate with them – even if it’s just for yourself. Chocolate has been used medicinally for centuries throughout cultures as an elixir. Add it to your Valentine’s Day holiday! Chocolate bars are known to support a healthy heart. Just add that to the cannabis and you’ve got the recipe for an ultra-sweet holiday.
Just Incase …
If you aren’t able to pick up cannabis chocolate edibles at a dispensary before Valentine’s Day, you can still make your own DIY cannabis-infused chocolate at home. Just follow this simple at-home recipe for chocolate cannabis edibles:
– 1-2 large chocolate bars (dark cocoa 50-75%)
– Cannabis oil, DIY extraction or tincture
– Add the chocolate bars into a small broiler pan, and turn the stovetop onto the lowest setting.
– Add in the chocolate bars and with a wooden utensil, stir the mixture slowly adding in drops of the cannabis oil into the chocolate as it melts.
– Continue to stir the mixture until it reaches the consistency you desire. You don’t want it to be too thin, but it should be easy to pour into ice trays or silicone molds.
– When you have added the cannabis oil, pour the melted chocolate into ice trays or another type of mold and place them into the refrigerator to set.
– Then, once cooled you can place them into a container, wrap them and share them with a loved one for Valentine’s Day.
On Valentine’s Day (especially if you are new to the world of weed edibles) try a micro-dose before eating a full dose of cannabis chocolate. This way, you can see where your limit is for sensuality and slouching on the couch before it’s too late. Besides that, you can just take your time and really sink into your Valentine’s Day this February 14th with any of these cannabis chocolates.
